I would like to go to this, and the RA SBK2 race.... but the house remodeling project starts this weekend. I'm afraid the next month or so is going to be fucked for me.

Got a trailer? I can fit 2 bikes in the tundra, but it'd be close getting all the gear in, especially since heather and the pooch would likely tag along too.

Likewise! Good times for sure. I just got home and showered. Thats a long drive. The dirt practice seems to have paid off. I was looking at the laptimes and I had the second fasted lap of the day behind the guy the guy that won the open expert/money race. His fastest was a 38.920 and I was just a few ticks off at 39.190 Once I get some brakes that I can trust that should come down even more. Now if only I could manage to do a decent race start

Where did you see the times? Did they post them there? I am sure I was not that fast LOL. I need more motor brakes are fine just set up more for the street I guess. I may gear it down alittle for next time and see what happens.

They had sheets posted.

I can't wait to go racing again. I've got a caliper rebuild/upgrade kit with fresh pads on the way, and a 48t sprocket. I was geared way too tall, so that should help.

I'd like to do another round, but the safety wiring requirements are retarded. I'm not going to spend hours wiring everything. The bike has a CCS-spec wire job and I'd rather leave it at that. (The guy tried to tell me it wasn't CCS spec, too)

Yep. I'm not slathering silicone over everything either. If the current wire job is good enough for sbkers2/CCS, it should be good enough for LOL. ESPECIALLY when the web page/entry form says:

Quote:
-All engine, transmission and final-drive-unit oil drain
plugs must be safety wired or have a glob of silicone
smeared upon the bolt head and adjoining surface
Then I get down there and I'm told that I need to wire all kinds of other shit? That's what really annoyed me.

I think everything changed last season when someone went out for the first practice, blew a coolant line, hosed his rear tire down with regular antifreeze, high sided in T1, broke his arm and caused about 1hr of cleanup. It's a shame they haven't updated the website but the rules are there for our own benefit.

I'll never forget that rider getting up off the ground with his arm at a 90 degree angle yelling for a medic...

I will tell Mitch to try an update the requirements. I don't mind doing a little extra safety wiring if it helps with keeping people safe and the track green longer. Changed my gearing so hope to get down there next month and try it out.
